The teachers in the Infant room take excellent care of my son. I get picture updates of the fun that they have and love the art they create! I know my son is in great hands when he is there.

I love the fact that I can go and ask questions without any hesitation. Food is prepared very well. My son was picky eater but he eats breakfast and lunch here almost everyday.!! Clean facility. Would not send my son anywhere else but here...!!

Let’s just say we have been more than impressed by Learning Edge Oak Creek. We were first impressed by the brightness, cleanliness and immaculate condition of the facility. The resources at Learning Edge including the integration of technology are also most impressive. However, my wife and I have come to realize the staff are the best asset of Learning Edge. From the moment we met Ms. Danita during a tour of the facility, we knew we needed to enroll our son. Ms. Danita, as well as more recently Ms. Joelle, are incredible people who should be up for sainthood. They bring positive energy everyday to school while fostering early education and social development. Personally speaking, Ms. Danita and Ms. Joelle have gone the extra mile to help us address our child’s high energy (and sometimes challenging) behavior. Their patience, persistence and positive attitudes are second to none. The open communication from the teachers, as well as management, assures we are not left in the dark as to our son’s day. We HIGHLY recommend Learning Edge to anyone looking for a daycare/preschool in the Oak Creek area.

As the mama of not only a young child, but one with very special needs, I was more than apprehensive to put her in to preschool / day care. Learning Edge is a GODSEND. I can't even begin to express my gratefulness for this place. Their faculty and staff go above and beyond any expectation you might have of what you would want for your child when not in your own care. Their attention to detail ( no matter how big or small) is a blessing. They listen to concerns and address them quickly. Learning Edge really does set the bar for other facilities ( not that I'd take my daughter any where else )
